We Asked to Daila what to do her ranking of “5 favorite rock routes”. Not the hardest, but the favorite ones. These are here choice:


1. Tom et jerrys 8b+
60 meters
Verdon
One of the most beautiful lines I´ve ever seen and also with a different logistic that the routes I normally climb.

The Verdon Gorge is one of the classic climbing areas in Europe, and one that should be on everyone list of places to visit. The routes range from short one pitch technically challenging affairs to multi pitch all day adventures. All the routes share incredible views and perfect limestone rock.

2. Mind Control 8c/+
40 meters
Oliana 
Super aesthetic line, when you see the route you want to climb it. Special. 

Oliana is a high overhanging limestone wall with no more than 30 routes from 7a to 9b+, most of which are up to 50 meters long. Sustained athletic climbing on tufas, big pockets as well as crimps and a lot of stamina is required to have fun at Oliana!

3. Kaleaborroca 8b+
40 meters
Siurana
Very special because it was my first 8b+

Situated in the stunning Sierra de Prades mountains, it is less than an hour from other very important areas such as Margalef, Montsant, La Mussara  and Arboli. Siurana is a place with great scenery. The crags are situated in between the tiny picturesque hamlet of Siurana and its larger neighbor, a village called Cornudella de Montsant. There are approximately 30 sectors and over 1200 routes, most of them of superb quality with new routes still being opened up all the time. 

4. Face du rat 8a+
25 meters
Ceüse
The best rock and the best wall in the world. Mini Biograhie :)

Ceuse's long thin band of grey, ochre and steel blue limestone is often said to be the best sport climbing crag in the world.
The rock is immaculate pocketed limestone with almost no loose rock or vegetation and is supplied with stunning blue and grey lines.

5.Humildes pa casa 8b+
Oliana
40 meters
Perfect tuffa line.
